Palau International Ship Registry (PISR) reports it has recorded a zero percentage detention record with the United States Coast Guard (USCG) in the latest figures issued for 2016-2018 Port State Control examinations.

The USCG targets flags for additional Port State Control examinations if their detention ratio scores are higher than the three-year rolling average detention record. In the latest figures, PISR recorded an overall 0.00% detention record with zero detentions for safety playing a major part in this.

In the two year period recorded, just 12 Palau-flagged vessels were examined for safety issues with only three recording deficiencies.

"We have a fleet of 400 with increasing interest from ship owners across the globe wanting to talk to us about our digital registry services," said Panos Kirnidis, CEO of Palau International Ship Registry. "Over the past three years we have introduced our Deficiency Prevention System (DPS) which is a dedicated service providing support to ensure vessel's compliance with required international conventions and prevent deficiencies and detentions causing them serious implications with Port State Control (PSC). From a dedicated department within PISR previous inspections findings are monitored along with the location and destination of the Palau flagged vessels with over 93% confidence their risk performance and priority for inspection by a PSCO. This has gone a long way to helping us achieve this excellent zero detention figure from the USCG."
